had the advantage of the weak opponent. franklin roosevelt won his second term, landslide, because of his huge popularity. however, in many more presidential elections, the candidates are in a heated battle to present themselves as the one best capable of serving the country with the winner walking off with the modest majority. it is a customary wisdom that the campaign between the incumbent president and his opponent will be either a referendum on the first term of the president, or a judgment of which candidate will be the better leader. is there really a difference between these two considerations? does not boil down to judging the leadership skill of the incumbent based on his effectiveness during his first term, versus the unknown leadership skills of the challenger? it's easy to point to the national security, or the economic consequences, or consequent impact on the ratings of an incumbent as a indicator of the popular view of the sitting president or the public was not over enchanted with the war in iraq when george w. bush ran for reelection. against john kerry, but voters

attempt to assassinate lincoln. and of course franklin roosevelt inaugurated in 1933 at the depths of the great depression and yet he's still able to inspire and uplift the american people to expect something new and something better. >> right, and i've heard a lot of people bantering this about. i mean, inaugurations aren't cheap. they do cost money. we do raise some private funds. lot of private funds through the inaugural committees, but we're looking at maybe $50 million at least. and some people have said, look, this is a second term. why do we need an inauguration? dot swearing in and move on. >> i think that's wrong, wrong, wrong. the price we pay as taxpayers is a small one. most of the money is raised privately. look, we don't have kings and queens in america, right? >> right. >> we don't have nobility. we have this one great tradition of the inauguration and the inaugural address, which george washington started. that's not in the constitution. it's the one time we come together and celebrate our democracy. we've now had over 200 years of stable democracy and the peaceful

this morning. franklin roosevelt did that because george washington had done it. i mean there's just something wonderful about that. he got out of the car and walked and so did mrs. obama. why? because jimmy carter did it in 1977. every president since has done it. i mean, >> a great strength to him. he might be more liberal than most people politically. in his personal demeanor, in his family life and in his style he's a very traditional person. that came across. that helps people relate to him. >> ifill: mark said he talked to a democrat who said he thought he did pretty well. did you talk to any republicans? >> i think they thought it was a good speech. people said this was one of his best speeches. some of them thought it was defensive, about defending the welfare state more than being offensive. i think the sentence that really got some republicans more upset was where he said we don't have to choose between protecting the programs for the elderly and securing programs for the young. i would say most republicans say, well, actually we do have a choose. if you keep the current benefit leve

. franklin roosevelt was moved by later movements. lyndon johnson had the civil rights movement. i think we begin with that. this book comes out at a moment when the country sees the power and possibility of occupy, 99%, and how that has shifted. it is still evolving. it has shifted the center of political gravity of our dialogue. the issue has been off the radar for so long. >> roosevelt surfed and harnessed those movements. he used them to get legislation passed to initiate programs. obama is still getting on his wet suit. to read the essay she wrote in 2008, there was a sense of exhibits -- exuberance. you say that hope is not optimism that expects things to turn out well. it seems like he confused those two things. >> i will come back to what i write about in the book. the expectations were so great and high. go back to 2008. the back to the election and year when we are fortunate region were fortunate enough to be living with debates that were not cruel reality shows. every week, there were debates among the democratic candidates. barack obama embodied change. it seemed he brought into

a democratic president franklin roosevelt and when talking about the welfare state, the dole, he called it a narcotic, a destroyer of souls. then the left forgot about that for about 60 years, woke up in the mid 90s for welfare reform and forgot about it again. we've had an explosion of people getting social security disability at the same time when the workforce has become less physical, fewer injuries and yet an explosion of people on disability. why? because those are people who have been misdiagnosed or who are i'm sorry to say on the dole, who should not be getting disability payments. we are create being exactly the thing franklin roosevelt warned us against, which is a narcotic, a destroyer of souls, a destroyer of our labor force. >> jared, the odd thing about this story, the odd thing about this story is that the unemployment rate is coming down. we're in a modest recovery. and yet these small entitlements like the disability that jimmy mentioned keep rising and rising and rising. we always talk about food stamps. this disability thing, we're actually paying people not to work,

, franklin roosevelt wanted him for the new deal in world war ii, like winston churchill in the bible, he can be used in any way you need. because he was so articulate and so prolific. 20,000 or more letters, brilliantly written, wonderfully eloquent. what can we make of it? this is the man, the human being we have. that is what i want to get to, answering president kennedy's question, what was he like? trying to figure this out, i asked for and was granted permission to sleeping jefferson's bed room one night on a pallet on a floor i hasten to add. wanted to hear how the clock sounded. jefferson always said he woke when he could start to make out the hands of the clock. the son had not called in bed in more than 40 years. i wanted to see if that was one of those things as dean acheson said no one comes up second best in their own memoir, what did that was actually true. a brilliant point from secretary atchison. what i learned was as the sun rises over the southwestern mountains in virginia the first place the light hits is his bed. he designed the house so that he would be able to begin to

was convinced that the only man who could save this was franklin roosevelt. so in 1932, he signed on to the franklin roosevelt team and was one of the only bankers to do so. in one of the only irish catholics to take of a prominent position. and he was one of the only hollywood man with connections and he was solidly republican. the outsider was on his way to becoming an insider. and yet he refused to play by the rules and become part of the roosevelt team. he refused to unabashedly say whatever you guys want to do, i will back it, i'm with you. yet he was so important to roosevelt as a banker in an irish catholic and an incredibly smart man that roosevelt appointed him chairman of the securities and exchange commission. at the time it was horrifying. why are you putting a fox in control of the chicken. and joseph kennedy was the greatest chairman of the securities and exchange commission that we have ever seen. he knew every trick of the trade and pass so many regulations in such tough regulations that when he was finished, he had to get out of the market. because every device us

safety net set up by franklin roosevelt helped the nation through the depression. the tough stance that lyndon johnson took on civil rights was absolutely the right thing to do in the 1960's. >> now we are seeing a move to the left in america that does not bodi -- bode well. 50% of american households have someone receiving some kind of social assistance. in order to pay for the entitlements, both earned like medicare and given like food stamps the nation's deficit is approaching 16.4 trillion. would can't sustain that spending. president obama and liberal allies don't seem very concerned. and that, in my opinion, is dangerous. on the social front the latest stats available show there were 1,200,000 abortions performed in the u.s.a. in 2008. that means more than a million americans will never be born. should the country be proud of that? yet, we see wild applause when proabortion zealots speak at the democratic convention, for example. exactly what are they applauding that more than a million potential human beings are dead? drug front panoply that drug use will be legal in the u.s

? >> second terms have been tough. even for franklin roosevelt. he started off his second term with his first political loss. here is why second terms are tough. number 1 many presidents often put out their best ideas in their first term. they don't even know necessarily if they are going to get a second crack. secondly, washington can be brutal. you are a little bit battered after a first term. and finally you have been in the washington bubble much too long and you do and everyone is calling you mr. president, and you have all of these handlers, and pollsters and hucksters who always bring you down to the lowest common denominator. my first advice to barack obama, take all of those pollsters and hucksters and second them to a island far, far away for the next four years. >> michael: listening to what you just said and coming off of that, president obama a lot of people think he has been in his own bubble. does that make him unusual? >> it does make him a little bit unusual. and i think maybe there's a chance here. look, if you want to be a great president, you have to ove

tradition of the inauguration speech held at the capitol. that was in 1945 when franklin roosevelt was being sworn in for a fourth time. franklin roosevelt, his third inauguration was done at the capitol, but his fourth one was in the middle of world war ii. he felt this was not the inopportune time to have an elaborate inauguration. he decided on his own to move the inauguration to the south front of the capital. the joint committee was not happy with that decision. the president of the united states can decide above and beyond the date and the time everything else is tradition and can be changed. we reverted back to holding inaugurations at the capitol. we moved them from the east front to the west front and the crowd has been getting bigger and bigger. one reason on the west front is that you can accommodate more people. if you look at the photographs of the last several inaugurations, you can measure the crowd by how far it goes back. when ronald reagan was sworn in, the crowds went back to a block beyond the reflecting pool. with each inauguration, at the crowd gets a little bit further

of the president, the precedent that teddy roosevelt established. it's franklin roosevelt and the experience during world war ii that really changes the nature of the office and it's the cold war. the greatest expansion in presidential power throughout our history has taken place during times of war. what happens during the cold war is war is institutionalized. we live in a time of permanent war. it's the president's role as commander in chief that leads to not only the creation of this great apparatus around the executive, but also the expansion of power. this is the one elected person in our constitutional system and during a time of the threat of nuclear war, it's one person who can make decisions. if you're looking at the key turning points, it begins with teddy roosevelt, wilson, franklin roosevelt and then the cold war forges what is now the modern presidency. >> steve, thank you very much. good luck with the special. >> thank you. >>> up next, krystal goes invisible like manti te'o's girlfriend and goes behind enemy lines to give tips or republican as they vf have a strategy session. it was

democrat. he was -- >> and was that known? >> no, it was not. he became l a fan of franklin roosevelt, cheered for him as a boy growing up in the 1930s. in the 1950s, some people felt s cronkite was a republican because his boss was.e the founder of cbs workedor directly for dwight eisenhower in world war ii, and ike just personally loved walter cronkite. so when you have ther 10th -- i mean, the 20th anniversary of d of day, eisenhower took caron cite to the wave -- cronkite to the beaches and wandered around there. is there was a feeling in the early '60s that cronkite was ake republican, but the vietnam ware showed him to be a liberal, and as i l write, he came out publiy saying i'm a pan of the left in a speech in front of barbara jordan, the liberal congresswoman from texas. >> did that hurt him? >> no.or was by that time he had stepped down as the anchorman in 1981. he had played mr. center and mr. objective quite well, any more than if you go to a doctor and are getting a surgery, youtc don't care if the doctor's ahe democrat or republican. he came out and voiced some dissent o
